I just used this product today and it worked well.

My only gripe is that while it has a nice looking low profile, it makes it a little hard to grip...at least with bigger hands.

The Audio Technica AT6012 is a great product for cleaning off your vinyl records.

I had this product for about 25? years until it finally wore out. I was pleased to find it is still manufactured and just ordered one.

I found it to be effective, gentle on the vinyl and virually bulletproof.

It also has a handy self-cleaning device built in and the fluid is injected from the rear, eliminating the problem of spotty wetting.

I doubt there is a better product in this price range

I started to collect vinyl records recently and I had bought a whole bunch from garage sales and goodwill's. Most of my records were extremly dirty and needed to be cleaned ASAP! So I went to look for the DISCwasher because I heard it was the best, but when I researched I found it not to be as great as the one back in day. So I kept browsing and found this gem. I had so many records that popped and even skipped and now they play like brand new!! Sooo worth the money!!!!

I got this to replace a Discwasher D4 that I lost; when I went to look at new Discwashers they simply aren't as well-made as they used to be... So, I got this instead. It's a very nice high-quality Japanese unit; materials and workmanship are really surprising for the price and there's absolutely nothing cheap or chintzy about it. It has a nice, clean look and a pleasant feel. There's a tray with a built-in scraper brush to clean the unit, a very nice touch. As far as I'm concerned, this is the record cleaner to get.

I bought this to supplement a very old Discwasher, which still worked fine. The Audio-Technica cleaner is tougher to use. It's hard to get the cleaning fluid (supplied with the kit) into the little holes of the cleaner brush without spilling it over the top of the brush. You also have to use a specific amount to load the brush, and if you don't use that to clean multiple records within, say 30 minutes, the fluid dries up and is wasted. So cleaning one record a day with this brush doesn't make sense. There is only enough fluid supplied to load the brush 16 times. I've tried using lesser amounts of fluid, and the brush doesn't get damp.
A suggestion to clean very dirty LPs bought at garage sales: A quick rinse with lukewarm water under the faucet gets off the loose grit; then use a very small amount of normal dish detergent to remove grease, oils, and fingerprints, gently wiping the entire surface with the flat part of your fingertips. Do this quickly and rinse immediately and thoroughly, and then dry the label area with a paper towel ASAP (I've never damages a label doing this). Then wipe the record parallel to the grooves, gently, with a soft, lint-free paper towel. Finally, holding the record by the edges, fan it up and down in air to dry most of the rest of the water off, and complete the drying on your turntable with a record cleaning brush like the Audio-Technica. And finally, for very dirty records that still have stubborn grease or fingerprints, I use lens-cleaning spray made for glasses, spraying it directly on the record, rubbing back and forth with my fingertips, then cleaning it off parallel to the grooved with tissue. I have restored some very dirty records this way with amazing results.

Probably the best cleaner around for the old vinyl. I find it beats the Discwasher system hands down. My substantial collection of LPs is as new because I bought one of these years ago and used it faithfully. I bought another one as I eventually wore the bristles out. The cleaning fluid can be made on one's own by combining 50/50 isopropyl alcohol with distilled water. The brush, however has no substitute.

I just used this product today and it worked well. The only thing that prevented me from giving it five stars was that the directions were not as specific as I would have hoped but this product was easy enough to figure out myself. Just make sure to wipe of the excess cleaning solution (after it drys) with a clean dry terry cloth.

Just like the title states. Gets rid of dust, finger-prints, and that weird white paper insert residue that gets stuck on older vinyl. Squirt some cleaner into the holes in top of the brush and wait for it to become damp and wipe the dirt away.

The only down side is if you have just 2 or 3 records to clean at a time, you have to still use the same amount of cleaner fluid to get the brush damp. Waste of cleaner to me, but I usually clean in bigger batches of records.

Great product overall and it works great I am on a second different brand bottle of vinyl cleaning liquid but the brush is still going strong.

This product works very well and I'm quite happy with how clean it gets my records.

But the instructions could really use some help. The brush has an arrow on one side that shows the direction the brush is to be moved relative to the record (either by manually moving the brush counterclockwise around a motionless record with the arrow side of the brush on the outside of the record, or by holding the brush steady and letting the record rotate against it). Easy enough, and the picture on the box attempts to show that, with the arrow side of the brush on the outside of the record and a big arrow drawn counterclockwise on the record intending to show the direction of the brush relative to the record. But that arrow on the record can easily be misinterpreted to mean the direction of the record itself, especially since most people will be holding the brush motionless while the record rotates beneath it, and because the text says "Gently wipe the record so that the arrow on the side of the Sonic Broom is pointing in the direction that the record is turning". Clearly the word "opposite" should precede the word "direction". The picture is for the first method (manually moving the brush on a motionless record) while the text is for the second method (holding the brush steady on a rotating record). There should be a separate picture and text for each method.

Then there's the deficient method of getting the cleaning solution to the cleaning pad by dripping/squirting a "unit" of solution (4 ml) into two tiny holes in the handle and waiting for the solution to soak through. This wastes a lot of fluid (there are only 60 ml in the entire bottle), it's a pain to do, and having to wait is a real negative.
